'Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon' Organizes Red Cross Blood Drive

Mgr Arno Moriani, the “devil's advocate”, is carrying out a canonization process, investigating in the interwar years a potential candidate for beatification in Transylvania. His investigation is quickly wrapped up. The strange stigmata on the corpse are not the hallmark of some divine power. In fact, the villagers see it as the “mark” of Count Dracula. The bishop decides to carry out his own investigation to determine once and for all whether the vampire truly exists. But the reality is deceiving. Fiction is powerful. Doubts arise. And doubt begets fear…

September 1920, the Vatican appoints Father Arno Moriani, the "Devil's Advocate", to investigate a potential candidate for sainthood in Transylvania. But in the shadows of the disturbing ruins that were once Vlad the Impaler's castle, his investigation takes an unexpected turn...

There is obviously no sch thing as vampires... at least according to the official line of the Catholic Church. But how can you be so sure, standing in the swirling mists of Transylvania ?

Carry out your investigation amidst tales of bloody deeds and ancestral fears. Doubts start clouding your mind and doubt begets fear...

The Dracula Blood Drive will take place October 3-4 at eight locations throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Each blood donor will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon for the PC as well as other give-aways.

“We are very excited to partner with Encore for the Dracula Blood Drive,” said Teresa Solorio of the American Red Cross. “We love having this opportunity to provide a fun environment for our donors, who are so generously giving of themselves to help others. If you have never donated before, now is a good time to start. If you have donated before, now is a fun time to donate again.”

“The American Red Cross does so much to help people in need and we are thrilled to be able to bring more attention to the importance of blood donation through our Dracula Blood Drive,” said Cal Morrell, president of Encore. “We look forward to a successful blood drive and hope people who have never donated blood take this opportunity to make a difference.”
